RNLI lifeboat review published

11 August 2022

A review into a dispute that resulted in the removal of the RNLI St Helier lifeboat in 2017 has now concluded. The review by Sir David Calvert-Smith QC advises that enough is known about the events and their consequences and there is no need for a more formal inquiry.

The review was conducted by UK-based QC Sir David under the instruction of the former Chief Minister, Senator John Le Fondré. On the recommendation of Sir David, the Chief Minister has decided that a further forma inquiry would not be a proportionate use of taxpayer’s money and would not realise sufficient further public benefit.

The Chief Minister, Deputy Kristina Moore, said:

“This review was commissioned by my predecessor and, in the interests of transparency and accountability, I am now publishing it. I accept Sir David’s recommendation not to proceed to a full inquiry. From my perspective, this matter is now concluded.”
